My copy of Windows Live Mail (Version 2009, Build 14.0.8064.0206) only
offers to import from:
| Microsoft Outlook Express 6
| Windows Live Mail
| Windows Mail
No other application is listed. You may need to seek assistance in the MS
Outlook (***NOT*** 'Outlook Express'!) forums. I have no clue how one might
export messages from MS Outlook in a manner that WLMail could access; unless
it is to save each email as a .eml file. Then you could drag the file to an
open WLMail folder, and drop it. Which could be a painstakingly long process
if Outlook can't save messages by group.
